Blinn's Jordan a hot commodity

One of the most sought-after JC wideouts in the entire country this year is Blinn WR Justin Jordan (5-11, 195). He's already got eight offers to his name and three more could be on the way. caught up with the fleet receiver and he updated us on recruiting and what drew him Blinn back in 2006.

"I was being recruited by a lot of schools, but I was a non-qualifier so I had to go to a JC," Jordan, who prepped at Plano High School in Texas, told recently. "There were quite a few junior colleges close to where I lived, but Blinn is the best program out there, so to me it was a pretty easy choice.

"The coaches here are great, the players are great and the program is great. It wasn't a tough decision really."

Jordan redshirted in 2006, but in 2007, as a redshirt freshman, Jordan posted solid numbers -- 30 receptions for 390 yards and nine touchdowns, while also posting 135 yards on 20 carries and one touchdown on the ground.

"They used me all over," Jordan said. "They used me in the backfield, they used me in the slot, they used me out wide and I also returned kicks too.

"I can hurt teams in a lot of ways. I'm a catch and score guy. I just do my best to make plays when I get the ball in my hands."

In addition to his on-field production, Jordan also has impressive physical numbers -- a 4.4 forty time, a 345 pound bench press and a 35-inch vertical.

He's such an impressive football player and prospect, that schools from across the country have offered him hoping to acquire his services starting in 2009.

"UAB, Arizona, California, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Southern Mississippi, Utah and Troy have all offered me," Jordan said. "Kansas State said they were close to offering me and Oregon State and Memphis both told my coaches they were going to be sending offers soon.

"Oklahoma is my leader at this point. They are a great program and they are looking at my transcripts. They have offered me, but they needed to check out my classes just to make sure things are all set and if they are, the offer will be official.

"They have a great program and they are always a top team. I like them a lot."

Jordan will be eligible to leave Blinn in December, following the season, and he'll have two years to play two.

We'll continue to follow Jordan's progress over the next few months and update things as they change.
